There’s Something Happening Here – Perhaps it is An Evolutionary Leap

MESSAGE FROM HOPI ELDERS

“TO MY FELLOW SWIMMERS:

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. We must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personal, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!

Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

WE ARE THE ONES WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR”

September, 2001

It has been some time since I have been able to find words to express the images and ideas floating around in my mind.   I have only been receiving scattered pieces of this puzzle here and there but no glue to connect them, no words to carry me from one piece to another.  In the past, once the pieces start coming, so did clear concepts and ultimately words. I simply had to run to the computer to get it down before it evaporated, like a dream when one wakes up,  Once at the keyboard the words seemed to become anchored and they flow from beginning to end.

However, for a very long time that has not happened, there has been information coming to me, but no flow, when I reach the keyboard the no words.

Now I understand why.  I did not have all of the experiences needed for the pieces of information to be accepted into my consciousness, and anchored into words. The last piece has finally come to me and now I am able to begin the process of writing it down.  I am putting this out as a theory because it seems, even to me, to be really out there, but then again, the times we live in are really out there also.

Many years ago I read a book by, Greg Braden, called, “Awakening to Zero Point”, where he mentioned that people who were journeying towards emersion in the Spiritual principals of Love, Compassion and Oneness, would experience an actual change in their DNA that would lead to positive health changes, among other things.  I have always remembered this, however, I have not had anywhere to apply the information.

I did a past life regression with a friend of mine, Ghary, and during the regression I progressed him into the future.  While he was observing the future I asked him about the Government.  It was difficult for him to describe, but he saw what appeared to be two governments.

I have been studying a new system that combines Astrology, Kabbalah, the I-Ching, and the Hindu Chakra System, that was channeled by a man who called himself, Ra Uru Hu.  He did this in 1987, the year of the great galactic alignment.  It is called, Human Design, and it seems to me to be one of the important additions to the tools that we have to guide us into this upcoming age.   I was listening to a Human Design lecture in which the speaker mentioned, that Ra, had channeled information about a “New Human” evolving during this time.

Suddenly I began to make connections, so many random pieces of what seemed like trivia worth noting, began to come together – things that had impressed me over the years were now connecting.

It is obvious that something is happening, something that those of us who pay attention know, has never happened before, at least not in recorded history.  Life, and humanity itself, at least as I had perceived it, had begun to change drastically. The galactic alignment was an exciting occurrence for me when it happened, but as far as I could see, it just came and went, no big game changer…so I thought.

I believe , though imperceptible, that this was when things began to change.  I understand now, that nothing happens in one day, or overnight,  I have heard so many actors who were labeled, “overnight successes”, that they worked most of their lives for that “overnight success”.  Something began in 1987, a major energy shift,  Something

that said, “From here on everything is going to be supersized”.

Personally, it was not until one day in the mid 90’s that I suddenly felt as though I had awaken, no, I felt that we had all awoken in a parallel universe.  Time seemed to move faster, and normal suddenly leapt to be the equivalent of what was once over the top, and there was no more “over the top” just more until there is nothing left.  What we had, what we wanted, what we felt, what we liked, didn’t like, our love, our hate, acceptance and rejection, the acts of Nature, everything was on a grand scale.

When I was growing up, Christians were the nice, quiet believers, unlike the power hungry, a rule for everything Catholics.  Then suddenly with the Christianity of the old south, which condoned the killing of Blacks and Jews as ordained by God, put on a loving costume seduced people with love and acceptance and suddenly they were killing doctors at abortion clinics in support of the right to life,  Everyone was killing for God.  Billionaires seemed to be the new millionaire, millionaires seemed to be the new middle class, and the middle class turned into an endangered species.  In fact, there were more animal extinctions than in the history of man.  While Cancer grew in the same proportion.  As has Mother Nature’s fury.

Yet, at this same time, Spirituality was growing in power.  Everything that was centered around love, the kind of love that is all inclusive and embracing with love as its foundation, grew more powerful– quietly.  This growing undertone of love and of unity was even emerging throughout the animal kingdom,

Then there is this story of a Lioness who adopted an oryx:

The Miracle Lioness: Kalmuniak

“SAMBURU , KENYA – In Biology, we know that there exist the thing called food chain. It could be like this: soil nutrients consumed by grass, grass consumed by deer, deer consumed by lion, lion die consumed by microorganism into soil nutrients, and so on. The food pyramid draws on who eat who and who get eaten by who. This means, an oryx, a kind of horned deer living in Africa, is a food to wolves, leopard, lion or other predators.
However, as what was reported in BBC 7 January 2002, A lioness in central Kenya has baffled wildlife experts by adopting a baby oryx. Reports say the full-grown lioness came across the oryx two weeks ago in the Samburu Game Reserve, scaring off its mother.
Instead of then attacking the defenseless calf, the lioness adopted the baby, protecting it from other predators, including a leopard.

kalmuniak

The local witnesses stated that every evening the lioness and the baby oryx would rest together. The lioness would curl up her body to the side of the oryx. The lioness even allowed the real oryx mother to come playing with the baby oryx, giving the baby milk. When the baby gets full, the lioness would then chase away the mother to go.
That also means extra work for the lioness, for she has to protect the baby oryx. In any way, the oryx do rise the appetite of her predator relatives, many other lions would love to meal on the oryx.
However on Sunday of 6 January 2002, the sad end to the story came when the lioness led the oryx to the river to drink. Weakened by two weeks of looking after her adopted baby, she fell asleep, failing to notice a hungry male lion in the area. The oryx was no more.
Patrick Muriungi, a receptionist at Samburu Lodge, told AFP the lioness was grief-stricken when she awoke to realise from the small noises of what had happened. The lioness was right away very enraged and attacked the male lion. “She was very angry. She went around the lion about 10 times roaring, and then the lioness disappeared,” he was quoted as saying.
Of course this extraordinary case attracts the attention of many. “This is either an extraordinary case of maternal instinct or simply the eighth wonder of the world,” the local Herman Mwasaghu told The Nation newspaper. “What is baffling is why the relationship has lasted so long,” said Wildlife expert Vincent Kapeen. He also thought the lioness spared the oryx “because animals have a special instinct to care for the young”. Or could it be because the lioness was being lonely? How about you? What do you think?
Local people in Kenya named the lioness Kamunyak, which means “the blessed one” in the local Samburu language. Since then she has cared for five more young Oryxes, but none lives longer than a week and the last escaped back to it’s mother. Kamunyak was last sighted in February 2003, and despite a number of searches, she has not been spotted again. Her story was recorded by Saba Douglas-Hamilton and her sister, Dudu, between January 2002 – August 2003. Their film, Heart of a Lioness, was shown on the BBC and Animal Planet. This a powerful message for us all to fight racism. If an animal can overcome her hunger and instinct to protect, imagine what we humans can do, if we really want to.”

A growing divide, two opposite directions seem to have clearly emerged in the world today, and as time passes it seems that the differences of those on each side become more more encoded in their DNA.   This makes the Hopi’s prophecy Rock and its fork in the path seem a clear sign of where we are headed.  We are a part of something incredible.

PROPHECY ROCK
“Prophecy Rock is a petroglyph on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona that describes the life path of our world. It represents the prophecy connected with the return of the White Brother to the land, who should be carrying a cross within a sacred circle. If, however, he happened to return with only the cross and no circle, this could be the beginning of the Great Purification that would bring about the end of the world.  The current day Hopi believe that the White Brother first returned to the land in the form of the Spanish invaders in the 1500’s, who were carrying the cross but no sacred circle (they came as enemies rather than friends).  Since that time, according to Hopi beliefs, we have been approaching the end of the world as we know it.

The lower left hand corner depicts the Great Spirit holding the reed through which the people traveled to enter the fourth world.  The people had the choice of taking either of two paths: the upper horizontal line is the materialistic path, while the lower line is the spiritual path.  The first vertical line (just before the circles) represents the moment that the white people returned to Hopi land.  (Note that the people on the top line are not connected with their heads, which indicates their dissociation from their spirituality and the Creator.)  The first two circles represent World War I and II.  The vertical line following the two wars is the last chance that the people on the top line (people in our modern culture) could return to the spiritual path and therefore survive to enter the joy and abundance of the fifth world.  The materialistic path then becomes jagged and gradually fades away.

From, “The Wild Rose Dreamer’s Cottage”

This shows that there are two paths, and people who choose one path and those who choose the other,  We have been in period of choice for some time,   The Hopi have certain signs that foretell the coming purification.  In reading the signs myself, it does not seem, to me that they need be consecutive. only that they need to be fulfilled.

The following Hopi prophecy was first published in a mimeographed manuscript that circulated among several Methodist and Presbyterian churches in 1959.

While driving along a desert road one hot day in the summer of 1958, a minister named David Young stopped to offer a ride to a Hopi elder, who accepted with a nod.

After riding in silence for several minutes, the elder said:

“I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan.

In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things full of wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, the mountains and streams of jumping fish in the west, and the places of holy altars of stone built long ago by my brothers’ fathers in the south.

From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left – the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.
“And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways. The great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our Emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten. Yet even this has been foretold. The time grows short..
“My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. We were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.
“He will bring with him the symbols, the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.
“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

“This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana – men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.
“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of the spinning wheels of wood filled with voices. In my youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes – the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.
“This is the Third Sign: A strange beast, like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his own eyes — the coming of the white mens’ cattle.
“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed by snakes of iron.
“This is the Fifth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.
“This is the Sixth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.
“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.
“This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.
“And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands – with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying.

Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon — very soon afterward – Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.
“But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You — perhaps you will see it. In time, in time…”

The Hopi elder became silent. They had arrived at his destination, and Rev. Young stopped to let him out of the car. They never met again. Rev. Young died in 1976, so he did not live to see the further fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy.”

OVERCOMING FEAR


The bravest people in the world are not fearless; they simply use that fear to motivate them instead of paralyzing them.
Fear is connected with something that once happened to us, some pain that imprinted upon our conscious mind yet the exact cause of that pain is hidden in the subconscious. I have a fear of confrontation. It hurts. That is not my adult experience of confrontation but my inner reaction to the thought of it. I feel myself being struck by something large and cold whenever there is a confrontation. It stops me. In my mind I know that I am equal to the situation, but in my gut I feel as though I am only two inches tall. I understand that it is the same feeling that I had during all of the fighting in my home as a child. I am certainly not a child anymore and if I carried the fear in from a past life, I am not there anymore either. However, the truth is that the conscious mind and all of its logic has about as much power over the subconscious programming as a pea has over the rotation of the earth. So, the problem with fear is that knowing the cause, even remembering the initial incident does not erase it. Again, fear is not logical and it is not subject to reason, it is based upon something that was proven to be a fact and can be removed only by proving it to be wrong. I read somewhere that courage is not being without fear; it is acting in spite of it.

Fear is self-perpetuating. Once we are afraid, that energy grows. What makes fear so much more powerful is that it is actually an ominous feeling that has absolutely no words. When dealing with worries we can rationalize them because there are things that go through our minds. Yet when we are struck by fear it is really this huge dangerous overwhelming nothing. It is a nothing because we don’t think it, we don’t see it – it is just a feeling suspended in the gut. Fear is a ghost in the machine of our being. There is no enemy so powerful as the one you cannot see – this is fear and fear is the greatest unknown.
Fear has a moment in which it immediately propels us back to a feeling that we had.

We actually fear only two things death and abandonment. Every experience in our lives that instills an unexplainable overwhelming sense of fear in us is infusing us not with reality, but with the translation of the subconscious mind. The subconscious sees something that could cause one of those two dangerous outcomes. If we have had past lives, we have died. When I was born I spent two weeks in an incubator – I had an enormous fear of abandonment – abuse me, berate me but don’t abandon me. There was a time that I could not even handle anyone saying, “Goodbye”. We are transported back to a time when we were in a situation that reminds our subconscious of this one. It shows us how we suffered, but not why or where or when. It is not impressed by the fact that this is a different situation. My mother used to pull my hair when she was angry at me. My father used to catch me by my braids to beat me. Into my thirties I automatically jumped or covered my head if someone raised their hand for anything, it was embarrassing. As soon as my hair gets too long I cut it off. I cut it off because I like it better short. But I don’t really know if I do. I don’t know that my subconscious mind which causes me to flinch or jump back when someone raises their hand – doesn’t cause me to feel the overwhelming need to cut my hair off and I simply interpret my subconscious fear of long hair as a fashion statement. It just tells us that something feels dangerous, if we ignore the warning, it will cause us to sabotage our efforts. Most often, we can’t simply walk through fear; we have to fight with all of our might, as if we were walking through an emotional hurricane to get to the other side.

Sometimes it just finishes the sentence for us, we don’t even feel the anxiety of it but we react to the situation as though we know how it will turn out. In this way we sabotage our efforts and begin to destroy a successful situation because our fear writes the script of the future. The subconscious mind is one of symbols, not words. It began creating its database before we knew words. I was afraid to ask for help, afraid of the pain of rejection. I don’t ever remember not being afraid to ask. As I mentioned before I was in an incubator when I was born. This was not a time when there was an understanding that infants need to be held and touched. So for the first two weeks of my life my needs, my cries probably were not really responded to. This fear had a terrible effect on my life on my relationships.

We have to remember that the subconscious mind is like a computer, garbage in garbage out. It tells us that it feels like something familiar. We re-feel a past event that had a painful consequence. We re-feel the situation but we do not necessarily re-play the situation. This is the value of fear and this is the problem with it. It says, “Danger, danger!!” but because it does not re-play the situation we cannot see exactly what that danger was so that we can compare it to what the current situation is. From this moment on it is up to us to examine the situation. It is important that the moment that fear advises us that something feels familiar it must be checked. Just because it smells like smoke does not mean the building is burning it could just be a stick of incense. However, fear will go there if it is free to travel at will. Take from fear its only gift. Allow fear to awaken us, allow fear to awaken our senses, but not our imagination. Listen to what it knows but never let it think. Fear is always attached to the past; its eyes are in the back. Fear makes us react much faster than we ever would if we consciously processed the information. Sometimes that saves lives, and sometimes it destroys them. We have to question our reactions, our fear and if it is in the way of a better life, we need to fight our way through it – once. After we make it to the other side once, it becomes easier and easier. Once we make it through we have taken the threat out of the program.

When we feel fear, we need to be in the current situation. Fear is there to tell us to wake up to the situation. So each time that we feel fear we must see clearly. If the situation that we see is really not related to what we are feeling, we must fight through the fear. Each time that we do this our fear will diminish. Fear is part of our survival instinct. Instincts do not discriminate. Our fears hold us back. There are often possibilities just on the other side of our fears that we never realize. I have wanted so often for someone to touch me but could not reach out. This invisible wall stood between the other person and me, this wall of fear. I was a bundle of fears, fear of reaching out, fear of confrontation, fear standing out, even fear of showing fear. I finally made the decision to act as if I were not afraid.
I reached the point where the pain of living within the limits set by my fears felt excruciating than having whatever I feared actualize. So I began, slowly, each time I was in a situation where I felt constricted by fear acting as if it were not there. It gets easier. I don’t think that it goes away. I am still encircled by my fears, but today I can walk through them with much more ease and not cower within their limits.

There are two distinct kinds of fear. One is rational one is not. A fear is rational when what you are afraid of is clear. If you are on the edge of a cliff, what will happen if you fall is clear. If someone is facing you with a gun, what could happen is clear. Even when we have unprotected sex, what could happen is clear. These are real fears that should be heeded. Fear is based on protection. We just have to know if we really need to be protected from what we are afraid of. We must confront our fears, and analyze our reactions, because the subconscious mind is powerful, it can trick us into believing that we are acting out of choice when we are really acting out of fear. We can be made stronger by our fears they force us to faith because it is the antidote. And when we have enough faith, we realize that the very worst that can happen isn’t anything compared to fearing the worst that can happen.

Capitalism and the destruction of our world

Here in the material world what matters is what we do, not our intent.  It is all about the results.  Because we are judged by our actions, the temptation is obtain a certain result, and often by whatever means possible.  “The ends justify the means” is something often said.  This is the consequence of living in an apparent world.  We are not punished for violating the law, we are punished for getting caught.

We create rules and laws so as to maintain order in the material world.  The benefit of creating the rules is that we can amend them to fit our desires.  After time, we equate what is legal with what is moral and ethical.  More often than not, honesty is motivated by fear rather than a need to live by Spiritual truths.   Ultimately we seek material security and we see this as best achieved through wealth and power.  We are like babies, who play peek-a-boo.  They think that if they can’t see you, you can’t see them.  A desire to feel significant motivates us to meet or exceed whatever society currently deems the standard for being valuable.

If Society applauds charity, we will be seen as charitable, if it is money, we will appear to have money.  If it is beauty, we will do whatever we must do to look beautiful.  We seek to look good.  When the light shines on us, we want to be viewed as special.  Most of us judge ourselves by the judgment of others.  Someone can go to church or to Temple every week, and be certain to tithe the appropriate amount to be seen as a charitable church going person.  Monday, that same person can lay off hundreds of workers in order to avoid having to deal with a decrease in his or her lifestyle – unfazed by the lives being destroyed in order to maintain a level of opulence.

A knife can be used to cut the food that we eat, and it can be used to kill.  We have found that almost everything that we create can be used to enhance lives or destroy them; the choice is dependent on our free will.  So, we have been given the ability to use logic, reason and creativity to make the world into a Heaven, or to justify why it is not our responsibility.  If there were a Satan, then the extent of his power would be to present us with an opportunity to make a choice.  Everything in our lives creates a choice.  And as a race, as inhabitants of this planet earth we have all participated in making the choices that have led us to where we are today.   It is very easy to see that the problems that we face are the result of greed, greed we attribute to the comparatively few who control the greatest amount of the world’s wealth.  But that is the easy answer.  It is easy to blame them because they are sitting on piles of money while we are waiting for the crumbs that will no longer be flowing downward – but we are all, or the majority of us are equally to blame.

The system that ensured that the wealth of the world would eventually settle in the hands of a privileged few has been fought for and protected by us, we the majority who hoped that if we fought to maintain the system – we too would one day be on top of that mountain and reap the rewards of that system.  Those who have are no greedier than those who want.  The difference is positioning – not intention.    The Capitalist system that has evolved – as it naturally would is by its design exclusionary.  It is a pyramid by continued design and fortification.  Most of us have not fought for an auto executive’s right to make $50,000,000.00, we fought so that, the right to make that money will be waiting if we get there.   Capitalism was never unfair until it became unfair to us.  We don’t follow the obviously – built-in trail of Capitalism that leads to poverty unless that poverty leads to us.  Everything that is a reality becomes so because there is enough emotional energy behind it to raise it from the unmanifest realm to the manifest.  We have fought to defend a system that only works because the bottom is heavy enough to support the top.

The system is wrong.  It is not open and it is not fair.  It is not built to be fair, and that is why we have liked it, because if and when we rise to the top, we too, want the ability to block all the entrances so that none of the wealth slips out.  It seems impossible to imagine that anyone with a High School degree could not figure out that if we keep milking all of the resources from the bottom of the pyramid, thereby shrinking it, and pulling all of those resources to the top of the pyramid, thereby grossly enlarging it, it would become an inverted pyramid and fall.  The only possible explanation for how we could have reached this point is that we have, in great numbers, become consumed with lust for the things of the world at the expense of our ability to see where this would take us all.

There are four basic rights which form the foundation of Capitalism.   The four basic rights are:  the right to private property. The right to keep all profits made after taxes, the right of choice and the right to compete with other business’.   As with all rights, there is no limit to the extent to which one may go to defend those them.  If I come up with an idea for a new kind of car, the major auto makers have the “right” to use their considerable wealth and power to make sure that my car never reaches the market.  Capitalism eliminates the possibility of a free market.  I don’t have a lobby.  If a corporation chooses to pay all of the earnings to the upper management, while eating through the pensions of the employees, they have that right.  However, under this system, the only right that I have as an employee is the right to quit.  It has become almost the equivalent of being anti-American to criticize the Capitalist system, as though it has somehow replaced Democracy in our minds – somehow we have come to see the two as one, when in reality the fulfillment of one nullifies the other.

It is the Capitalist system that has spread like a cancer throughout the world and is eating us alive.  Capitalism is not Democracy.  Democracy is harder to spread.  Equality is only popular with those who believe that they are not being treated equally.  We are only at the beginning of the suffering that this cancer is causing in the world.  We are like diabetics who are looking for another cause for our diabetes because we can’t face giving up sugar.  I think that we all know how that turns out.  We need to give up our search for happiness in money.  People with money are not happy because of the money, they are happy in spite of it, and we need to stop buying the whole appearances thing.  It is time for us to revision the American Dream.  It should be the dream where everyone is able to have enough, enough food, enough shelter, enough love and therefore, enough happiness.

Those of us, who are not on the top of the material food chain need to seek joy in what we can all share, seek entrance into the club with open membership.  And those of us who are hiding behind our golden gates, need to open those gates and find ways to share what we have that we will never need with those who need but will never otherwise have.  This is a moment of choice.  It is a time to reach into all of our hearts and light them up with generosity, and a desire for equinimity, or wait, just a little while longer and it will all be taken away as our world crumbles around us.  At this time, it no longer matters what other people think about us based on what they see.  Now we are being carefully monitored by the One who sees what no one else does, the One who sees into our hearts and watches what we do.  It will never again look as good to have more as it does to give more.
